Regarding DropBox restrictions

Regarding DropBox restrictions

Explorer | Level 3

I want to make it so my workers would only be able to download and upload files, while not being able to delete or edit.


So, they would be able to download files, create folders, but not delete or edit them- Only the admins would be able to do that for them, is it possible?

Re: Regarding DropBox restrictions


Hey @yoavyoav, thanks for posting on our Community!


When you say your workers, I imagine you're referring to team members of a Dropbox for Business Teams account you're the admin of? 


Can you let me know if you'd like to do this on  the top level of your folder structure or if you'd like to have different people with different permissions across the folders in your team's shared workspace?


Are you familiar with the file locking feature by any chance?


Let me know and we'll take it from there.
